More of your of hard earned money stays in your community when you shop local. Less fuel is wasted when you buy from people you know and trust. The food you eat will be fresher and much m healthier. We had a wonderful day at the market and thought we would share it with you. Supporting local farmers has enriched my life in so many ways. Shopping at the growers markets brings laughter, wisdom, friendships and of course deliciousness into my life. My friends ask me why my food tastes so good. My answer is always the same, "start with a good product". It is understandable that some foods don't occur in certain areas. Seafood for example can't be found in my desert state. It can be obtained from a local retailer that brings it in from sustainable sources and will also catch his own. And when buying goods like chocolate, coffee look for products that are fair trade, this ensures that your food producer is getting a fair deal. It locally help end world hunger. Don't forget don't waste food share it.
